There are group coaching opportunities for adults whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced player. We are always happy to discuss your requirements and will introduce new sessions if there is enough demand.
Sessions are run in blocks of 6 with discounts and priority given to those who book a block. So long as 48 hours notice is given, you will not be charged for non attendance.
Pay-and-play is available if there is a suitable space. Just call on the day.
